    The name is clearly a little joke about Blizzard. I wish they'd chosen another name because every time I see one of those companions I'm going to be reminded of Blizzard and WoW.

    Why's it a joke about them? It's just a goddamn name.

    He's cute, but not he'd be sitting in my ship 9 out of 10 times.

    I was pretty confident his name had something to do with Hoth and not WoW.

    This just in:

    Blizz is a pun to make fun of Blizzard.
    We never landed on the Moon.
    JFK was shot by Abraham Lincoln.
    Lindbergh's Baby was Kidnapped by Amelia Earhart
    9/11 was a plot to get Sesame Street off the air.

    Well, I'm out of ridiculous things, anyone else got anything?

    There really was a spoon.

    That the fashion industry is behind every major 20th century assassination.
    Any of the David Icke theories. That guy is a complete whacko.

    Common sense, evidence, and logic aren't things very many people are accepting of when the result of it means they're wrong.

    His name is not connected to Blizzard the company, but a blizzard.

    You guys act like Bioware hates Blizzard, when Bioware players have been WoW players themselves and Blizzard laid the ground for MMORPGs being as popular as they are today. Large companies aren't petty.
    I mean they need each other to steal ideas from! I kid (slightly >_>)

    it has nothing to do with Blizzard you are looking for deeper meaning when the re is none. it's a fitting name for a Jawa.

    I don't see the big hype over the though tough, I guess it's okay but it seems like a companion I won't use. just not interesting. more "cute" or "amusing".

    I never really thought of a possible connection. I mean, it's not like every abbreviation of the word blizzard is property of Blizzard. Honestly, even if there was a connection I wouldn't care.

    I don't see how that's a joke. But I suppose it's easier for someone like you to draw Blizz to a video game company, and not to the fact that he traveled with said bounty hunter DURING THE COLD WAR.

    Cold. Blizz. Hmm....interesting.

    So if you name a box-shaped companion pet Square is that making fun of Final Fantasy?

    It isn't a reference or jab at Blizzard. This is as silly as thinking Deathwing is a direct reference to Dungeons and Dragons.
